Signing a five-year deal with La Liga giants Barcelona in the summer of 2012, former Arsenal midfielder Alex Song was hopeful that a leap to one of the strongest clubs in the world would further his career as a top-flight midfielder. The 26-year-old grew into a strong talent in seven seasons at the Emirates and because of his success with boss Arsene Wenger, Song inked a five-year, £15 million deal with Barcelona in August 2012. Though his current club remains in the race for the top spot in La Liga, the Cameroon National star said he’ll need to take a look at his future since playing time with Barca’s first unit has been limited. That future could include a reunion with his former boss as well.

“I will return to England, that's for certain,” he said. “Right now, I'm not thinking about it. If I have to leave Barcelona one day, it will be for a transfer to England. At the end of the season, I need to take stock and see what I'm going to do for my future. He [Arsene Wenger] was like a father to me. He spoke a lot with me when I arrived to Arsenal. I wanted to renew my contract with Arsenal but in that case I would have regretted not joining Barcelona. Barcelona are the best side in the world.”

While a return to Arsenal sits as a possibility, first-year boss David Moyes and his Manchester United club are believed to hold interest in Song as well. The fact that Man U is still in need of midfield help – even after acquiring former Chelsea star Juan Mata during the recent winter transfer period – and because Song has only appeared in 12 La Liga games this season create the definite possibility that the Ngambe, Cameroon native could land at famed Old Trafford as early as next season.
